Quintos los Arcos September 2010
Previously we have always stayed nearer the centre of Alvor so we were a bit apprehensive about how far away the apartment was. However it was only a 10 minute walk into the town centre and about 20 minutes to the beach. We enjoyed the walk particularly as we spent the rest of the time lazing about! There was a supermarket close by, (Alvorferias) so handy for the breakfast stuff, without the walk. (Much cheaper than those nearer the town centre)
The apartment itself was very spacious, if a bit dated, with everything you would need provided. Cleaning was done once during our week stay which was fine. Our apartment looked directly over the pool and had fabulous sea views too.
There were three showers, just don't try using them at the same time, as someone ends up with all the hot water and the other with all the cold!
Alvor is a lovely place, this being our third time returning. Lots of choice of places to eat, drink & be merry. We will be back again. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday and to enjoy a nice meal and a drink at night, then Alvor is for you. If you are looking for wild nightlife and clubs then this is not for you.
Suitable for everyone except those looking for wild nightlife.
